SOME of the many lost buildings of Southwick will be brought back to life in the next Southwick Society Heritage Talk.

Local historian Ted Heasman will present Lost buildings of Southwick at Southwick Community Centre on Monday, March 10, at 7.30pm.

Society secretary Nigel Divers said: “Ted has been researching Southwick’s history for many years and is a mine of information about all things local.

“Many people will remember his long series of articles in the Shoreham Herald.”

The Albion Street and Butts Road area was once a warren of houses, shops, pubs, workshops and chapels, some dating back 200 years.

There were two schools on Southwick Green, a farm in Park Lane, a barn where Southwick Square stands and numerous cottages and farm buildings scattered around the town.

“Ted will be taking us on a journey through this lost landscape,” added Mr Divers.

Entrance is £4, £2 for Southwick Society members.
